The bond between humans and animals is one of the most beautiful things one can capture on film. Look at this heartfelt hug between this girl and her golden retriever. They’re holding one another as if they are clutching onto the only thing that will keep both of them from drowning.
The dog looks like a seasoned vet (ha!) and knows in his heart what awaits him in the vet’s office. Poking and prodding and a cold stethoscope for a few seconds. The agony! We hope the dog and human hug like this each time they visit the vet together, understanding the fear, but also that things usually turn out OK. This is a gesture of reassurance, not of despair.
We're Going Where?!
This dog looks like he might need some sedatives just at the thought of going to the vet. The pup looks troubled, almost as if it just learned of the death of a family member. It has to be thinking about something much worse than going to the vet.
Also, not for nothing, this is one big boy. If he decides to defend himself, it's going to take a few good men and a lot of treats to calm him down. Maybe the owner can get this doggie some meds for the next vet appointment. Be strong boy, the big bad vet will be done before you know it!
The End of Hope
This is what a dog looks like when its every hope and dream has been trampled in front of its very eyes. Look at that happy hopeful puppy on the left. Cute, isn't it? Now look again at the photo on the right.
What happened to that hopeful pup? We think it may have been the news that a vet visit was coming up. He's still young and naive and believes his owners would only put him in the car for trips to the park. Unfortunately, reality has ruined this dog's happy energy. The owner is going to have a hard time making it up to him.
They Can't Possibly See Me Here
Clearly, hiding is a foreign concept to a few of the animals on this list. Look at this cat, for example. As cute as it is, does it actually think the corner of the table is any harder to see than the edge or the center? In his defense, he can't be more than a few weeks old - that's not a lot of time to learn how to hide. This is probably one of the first vet visits for this kitten, and he's got a lot to learn.
This kitty looks concerned, as it should be, since it's not really hiding at all. It just got a shot, so we understand the horror and disappointment. This kitty's been betrayed, and it knows.
This puppy's shock is so overwhelming that its mouth is quivering shut! This pup is in complete disbelief. Maybe someone just called it a cat, or said the moon is made of treats, but whatever it was, we didn't know a dog was capable of having such a combination of emotions.
This dog knows it's going to the vet, and it doesn't seem ready to listen to the idea that it won't be that big a deal. It's both ready to fight and scared for its life - we've all been there. Granted, most of us can't fit under a chair.
